This song had drums, bass, and acoustic guitar tracked in a studio. All vocals, electric guitars, percussion, and cello were tracked with an MBox. Mics used for electric guitars were the SM57, AKG C3000, and RE-20. For the cello, I used an SM81 up close and an AKG C3000 a few feet back. Percussion was tracked with the C3000. Vocals used the RODE NT2000.

The cello had some tuning issues, so alot of editing was involved there . . . it's still a bit out, but as long as it's low in the mix it actually adds some nice tension.

For the kick drum sound, we purposely took all muffling material out of the drum, and set a second mic several feet back. This gives the loose, open character to the drum that you don't hear in the other songs from this session.

This was tracked in Pro Tools, and mixed on an SSL G-series. Basics engineered by Steve Nichols, overdubs engineered by Aaron Saloman. Mixed by Steve Nichols, mastered by Aaron Saloman.
